A friend of mine recently asked me what my "end game" was with this blog. Truth is, I have no idea. I know that I'm really enjoying being creative & writing again. I'm enjoying getting to know some of my readers around the country. Weirdly, I find that my life feels more balanced since I started this project, which sounds bizarre since I'm busier. I'm busy in a good way, though, & clearly blogging offers me something I needed to be doing. I'm having so much fun with this!
I don't dream of this turning into my full time job, however. I also love teaching. I have a really hard time imagining walking away from being with the kids every day, even if this blog somehow started turning a huge profit... so I guess what I'm doing now is my end game. I want to write & search for deals online & connect with readers & other bloggers. This blog is my dream just the way it is :)
I do have to say, though, that I'm getting vicarious joy from reading about what's going on on some bigger blogs. For example, Living in Yellow is getting to design a clothing line with Gibson. How exciting is that! She clearly did want to make her blog her full time job, & boy, mission accomplished! She has a staff! Good for her! It's really neat that we live in a time when there are so many resources to help people create the lives they'd like to live.
If you're thinking of starting a blog in 2018, you can check out my Pinterest page called Blogging in the USA. I've found lots of resources if you're looking to try this out!
I'm an English teacher, a wife, a dog lover, a bibliophile, & a wanna-be fashionable mom. Well, I'm already a mom. Just trying to get the "fashionable" part going...
